P.S. In 2020, control of the Legislature and subsequent redistricting of Congressional & Legislative districts are in the balance. It's imperative to achieve parity in our State Legislature, including to make redistricting reform a reality. Note: Several of these candidates previously ran in unconstitutionally gerrymandered districts. Let’s not ask more to do the same.
